Below is the earlier post about today’s voting:

Voting is currently underway in both Indiana and North Carolina. Polls have certainly tightened in Indiana where Clinton is hoping to eek out a victory. On the other hand, in North Carolina, Obama is standing pretty tall right now, possible set to take a 10 point victory in the state.

Some North Carolina voters from the Associated Press:

And, of course, some Indiana voters:

A report on the primaries from Marketwatch:

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Voters hit the polls Tuesday in Indiana and North Carolina in the latest contests in the long-running race for the Democratic nomination.

With the economy a top issue in both states, the latest polls showed Obama maintaining his advantage over Clinton in North Carolina but a tighter race in Indiana, where Clinton still leads. This raised the possibility that the candidates could win one contest apiece and further prolong the nomination battle.

The candidates sparred over Clinton’s support for suspending the federal tax on gasoline as the Tuesday primaries neared, with Obama’s campaign running ads in both states saying that the proposal wouldn’t save consumers much money. Clinton countered that Obama has no plan of his own to lower gasoline prices, and said her idea would save motorists about $8 billion.
In Indiana, a traditional manufacturing state, union support is likely to help Clinton, analysts said.

In North Carolina, meanwhile, a heavy concentration of African-American voters is expected to help Obama win the state, with more than a third of voters in the primary expected to be African-American. Upper-income and younger Democrats are also expected to line up behind Obama in North Carolina.

Tuesday’s contests are the first in the Democrats’ nomination race since Clinton handily defeated Obama in Pennsylvania on April 22. More Pennsylvania Democrats who said they were worried about the economy voted for Clinton, which has put pressure on Obama to reach out to voters on the economy.

Indiana polls close at 7pm eastern time while North Carolina closes at 7:30pm eastern. We’ll have the full results as they come in later tonight.
